‘Terrible’… Alan Shearer shares what he found awful about Liverpool on Sunday.



The word “terrible”… On Sunday, Alan Shearer revealed what he considered abhorrent about Liverpool.Alan Shearer has criticized the caliber of football that Manchester United and Liverpool displayed on Sunday.

While touted as the pinnacle of English football, this weekend’s matchup at Anfield fell short of the expectations.United supporters will be content with the outcome, perhaps even glad to have salvaged a point. With the exception of Liverpool supporters, however, the event was largely disappointing for all. Shearer reiterated this sentiment in an appearance on The Rest Is Football podcast.


The expert remarked, “The game was abhorrent.” “I am astounded that I was required to observe it in person before rewatching it on Match of the Day.” The game was dreadful; the standard was inadequate. I am aware that Liverpool were the superior team and had more opportunities and possession, but both teams produced abysmal forward play.


“In fact, both teams found themselves in favorable circumstances. Although Man United scored twice in the second half and Hojlund came close to scoring but missed, the game was abysmal. Manchester United was obligated to defend, defend, defend.” “Liverpool had nothing going for them offensively yesterday; they simply could not reach the back of the net.”


Liverpool presents an egregious spectacle.

Following United’s 7-0 rout in the previous season, Sunday might have been destined to be the exact opposite.


After exhibiting a daring and costly assault on Liverpool in that momentous match in March, Erik ten Hag’s squad adopted a considerably more conservative approach this time around.Despite being entrusted with breaking down the Red Devils, the Reds were unable to accomplish that.


United deserves credit in some respects for that. There were forecasts that Liverpool would cruise through the match, but they hunkered in and prevented that from occurring.However, this club also holds the record for the most league titles won in English football. They ought not to approach their most formidable competitors in such a pessimistic manner.


However, if Ten Hag’s objective was to sabotage the game and the occasion, then his strategies were successful.


However, it is also true that Shearer is in the right. Despite their visit to Anfield and lack of genuine offensive intent, Manchester United had arguably the clearest openings of the match.


Rasmus Hojlund ought to have scored against Alisson Becker one-on-one. Trent Alexander-Arnold was one step away from obstructing Alejandro Garnacho’s opportunity to shoot past the Liverpool goalkeeper. It was ultimately one of those days. We must perform better against the Reds in our next outing.
